With the arrest of six persons, police on Monday claimed to have smashed a gang of Bangladeshi robbers operating in posh areas of the capital and recovered stolen property worth over Rs 10 lakh from their possession.
The arrests came after police, investigating into several incidents of robbery in South Delhi, received a tip-off that the gang's alleged kingpin Mohammad Fareed would visit a market in Nizamuddin to sell some stolen goods.
They soon laid a trap and apprehended Fareed and his associate Mohammad Kabir, police said.
On their interrogation, police got information about the whereabouts of another gang member Mohammad Alam and three others -- Mukesh Jain, Mohammad Munna and Mohammad Irdish -- who bought stolen goods.
Raids were conducted soon to nab the accused and Alam was arrested from the New Delhi railway station when he reached there to board a train to Calcutta. The three others, including jeweller Mukesh Jain, were arrested later.
Police said 11 cases of robbery were solved after their arrest and claimed to have seized jewellery, mobile phones and electronic goods worth over Rs 10 lakh from their possession.
